Enviroline Corrosion Monitor
Wednesday, April 23, 2008
Enviroline Monitoring Systems is offering the Enviroline Corrosion Monitor, an early corrosion detection system for pipelines, tank farms, refineries, and petrochemical installations. The Enviroline Corrosion Monitor is based on the principal of hydrogen flux – as corrosion occurs and metal dissolves on the inside wall of a tank or pipe, atomic hydrogen is formed. This atomic hydrogen migrates along the grain boundaries and inclusions of the steel and can cause Hydrogen Embrittlement, Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC), Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC), and Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC), all severe defects for the metal that can cause catastrophic failure of the tank or pipe. With Enviroline, atomic hydrogen levels are continuously monitored from the moment of their formation in the tank or pipe. This data is sent via Satellite to the Enviroline website and is charted to provide a visual representation of the migration and corrosion activity. Pipe and tank operators can access accurate and real-time data anytime, anywhere, and can customize e-mail alerts for instant notification. The Enviroline Monitoring System is the only continuous monitoring system that can be used for both corrosion and process monitoring, allowing operators to evaluate more effectively and efficiently their corrosion control programs, and implement changes and repairs well before corrosion can cause costly defects or failures in the pipe or tank. www.envirolinegroup.com/ems/index.html

Very interesting topic. We are involved in another method of corrosion measuring for metals, polymers and polymer based materials. The method is the so called: Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy method. The electrical impedance of materials changes when diffusion and corrosion takes place. On our forum and website you can find more information. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
